RESUMO:

This dissertation approaches the representation of women in the construction of the discourse that is perceived in the narrative and conceptual processes performed by the character Lara Croft, at the game franchise Tomb Raider. This research was based on the Grammar of Visual Design, which is mainly related to aspects of nonverbal language connecting technology to speech. The objective of this work is to identify the representation of women through the protagonist, it comprises a timeline
from 1996 to 2016, observing the changes of the character over 20 years time in terms of visual resources, and the discourses related to women involved in these representations. This dissertation was developed through a descriptive and interpretative qualitative research method, and has a historical background to establish the representation of women showed in the evolution of the composition of the protagonist`s image, which was based on three basic axes: the Social Semiotic Theory of language; the Critical Discourse Analysis; and the theory of social representations. The primary sources, composed by eleven games, present the object to be analyzed, Lara Croft. The corpus was delimited by the relevance of the character within the culture of the digital games as well as in other areas such as: cinema, comics and toys. All corpus games were played, protagonist actions were compiled in a catalogue, images were separated, and all of them were analyzed. The different semiotic modes and resources used in the composition of the character and her actions were identified and analyzed from the perspective of the Social Semiotic Theory of language focusing on the ideational metafunction, in order to perceive the semiotic potential produced by the signs, as well as the discursive senses presented by the elements in the representation of women. The results pointed out to the representation of an idealized woman who approaches the male universe, being an erotic, seductive, dangerous and empowered woman. She moves through both patterns desired by men as well as changes that come up in the society concerning female empowerment. It is important that the receivers of the message be aware of the discourses that are implicit in the images so that they will not consume entertainment in an uncritical way, thus allowing a break down of representations rooted in the society.
